This cooled quite a bit as I got distracted by Lupicia and other tea related things. Now I am sipping on this as I continue to watch Homeland. It is always a nice, pleasant cup. It is also one of my oldest teas (August 2013) so I am hoping to finish off what I have soon but I’m sure I will be restocking it as it is one of the few caffeine-free options I consistently enjoy.

I didn’t even see your note. :D

Mine is also from August 2013 (my older teas minus things from swaps and such) XD Also, I got your Birthday Package today! Thanks so much

Yay!! I am glad it arrived. The birthday stuff is wrapped so you have the option to wait to open it on your actual birthday or not. I figured I would leave that up to you :)

Roswell Strange

I cheated and opened it all ;) Honestly, I didn’t even think of waiting until I’d opened everything and only then did I go “Wait, maybe I should have waited for my actual Birthday…”.

Also, I’m over 200 again ;P

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.
